..Shattered white cups at the foot of a dark mountain. An unknown horizon beyond..
Eight of Cups is about a great change that is known or felt. Either something must shift, or one has already decided to take the leap. Internally, there is already the presence of a gut wrenching knowing that one must move toward a new direction in one or various aspects of life. As we travel the inner and outer realms of life we begin to take with us what is fulfilling and rich in our lives and we also pick up what hinders the organic and vibrant flow of life. As we continue to journey we learn, grow, observe, act, and move in ways which that at times in vigor our lives and also deplete our lives. This is how we learn to navigate more wisely, as we open our eyes to what resides in the deepest core of our being we honor what wishes to be valued, cherished, and nourished. As we become acutely attuned with this core depth of our being we begin to invite that which serves our highest good and detect much more efficiently that which does not. The Eight of Cups is a drastic change that makes space and movement toward that which is in higher alignment with our individual and collective path. Becoming raw, open, vulnerable, and honest, moving forward to that which nurtures, supports, and holds our sacred path with loving arms.
For something that needs to be changed it must be acknowledged sincerely. As this takes place, internal space becomes open and light for new movement to be made internally and externally. Eight of Cups can be painfully beautiful. As we see what no longer serves we make the choice of rising into new territory celebrating a new way of living. This is a time to reassess and evaluate what we hold dear and what we do not. What is it that we cling to which is weighing us down and what moves are we making to step forward? Eight of Cups looks dark, but as this darkness is acknowledged a breath of fresh air is inhaled and new perspectives arise. This leads to more magic, possibilities, and a great abandoning of poisons and toxins within our being. As we face these dark layers from denied territories within we expose the immense beauty that is birthing itself into existence. We are pregnant with new life, and a fresh way of being. Death and Birth are tied in as one. We see this as we dive deeply and uncover what was/is dormant…we awaken the sleeping beast.
One must ask, has what been seen been fully acknowledged? Or, is there still an aversion to this honesty? An automatic response will come within. Deep in our womb, we know. When we tune in, pay attention, the answers show themselves. Whether on the verge of raising a hand and acknowledging the hidden dragon, or, on the other side where one has already acknowledged what is….Now is the time to feel into this. Eight of Cups is drastic change. It’s coming, it is here, and the next trajectory is lighter and brighter once deep recognition takes place. It can be extremely scary to walk into unknown territory and extremely exciting. The next chapter of the unknown is a step in the right direction. It is the rainbow after the storm. One is being pulled into right alignment with their soul purpose. It is a time when profound realizations of ones unique direction and path are leading the way and what must be let go in order to create new space and new life. All stagnant, dormant, and all that is unchecked will arise now. Dive deeply, be honest, and watch the magic that arises from this rawness of spirit.
